Indiana, Utah Courts Strike Down Same-Sex Marriage Bans

Federal courts in Indiana and Utah on Wednesday struck down same-sex marriage bans in those states.

The ruling from U.S. District Judge Richard Young in Indiana said the prohibition was unconstitutional because it violated guarantees of equal protection and due process.

Separately, an appeals court ruled 2-1 that Utah’s ban was unconstitutional as well, saying that any couple, regardless of sexual orientation, has the right to marry.
